The Cleveland Browns are losing by a score of 14-7 in the first half, and it has certainly been a weird mix of things we have seen. I like that I've seen Evan Moore a few more times and Greg Little is getting open, but Peyton Hillis is most certainly not getting the bulk of the carries or snaps.
Defensively, the Browns have had a tough time stopping Darren McFadden, but starting quarterback Jason Campbell left with an injury and has been replaced by Kyle Boller. When Boller is the quarterback you're facing, you're always still in the game. The difference so far? A 101-yard kick return by Oakland's Jacoby Ford. I don't know what the deal is with Shurmur not playing Hillis, but if I don't see him the second half, I'm going to be really irritated.
